    Well finding a hard cover and wing is the next mission. In looking for the after market ones that are around for the maloo. I got the money ready so thats the next thing to do.

    It came with a after market sports exhaust already fitted.

    Im doing some research now and planning what i want in the engine department. I think i will head to one of the proformance tuning and modding places in perth next. See what they can do :)

    Also lots of reading to do on this site next as i only found it today.

    that looks awesome mate. wouldn't put the spoiler on, but that is just my opinion. the hard cover will look heaps good. you going a flat one or one with the humps on it like the thunder utes?

    If you need a performance center, you cannot go past Kostecki Engine Center (www.kec.com.au) they do heaps of gen 3/4 work. Good guys. Anyway, good luck with it.

    Yeah thanks all...

    Shacks hsv holden dealership here in w.a. said they would get me a hard lid at trade prices.. They said around $2500 for the lid and wing when i brought the maloo 3 weeks ago of them. I phoned them today to organise the hard lid and now there telling me its $4500 painted at trade prices.. Like WTF !!!

    Not impressed and i told them were they can stick that lid.

    The problem i guess i got now is the normal SS lids dont fit the maloo, and i got to find a aftermarket hsv one or a original hsv one.

    These http://www.tortuga.net.au/index.html hard lids dont look to bad. There the only aftermarket ones i can find so far.

    see how i go i guess... I did want to get the cosmetics on the maloo out the way before i start in the engine bay. Ya never know tho - after hearing some of these prices for lids, i might start in the engine bay.. haha
